    Volcano WILL NOT START!! HELP

    Ok, yesterday I did the break in of the motor but then today, I get the thing running for a few second with the glow igniter on top and then take it off and sometimes it stays running. If I give it gas it speeds the tires up and then when I let off the gas it gives it a little more. Then if I try to hit the brakes to idle the motor it stalls out. Now when the motor starts the wheels keep spinning. I adjusted all necessary needles and still can't get it right but yesterday it was fine. I also checked the glow plug and it lights up when I take it out and connect it to the igniter. I'm about to scrap this thing real soon if I don't get it running right. I'm willing to send it to one of you guyz and pay you to get it running right.[:@]

    Check your clutch spring. Common problem. There are a ton of posts about it. Just search... there are a few write ups.

    RE: Volcano WILL NOT START!! HELP

    Yeah the reason why your wheels are spinning is because your clutch spring probably snapped, read the first post of that thread ksnitro has a link to. That's probably also the reason why your motor keeps stalling when you hit the brakes. And just a warning you'll probably be needing a new glow plug real soon. The first one doesn't last very long after the break in.
    But yeah man, you're gonna have to calm down. These things take a lot of patience.
    Remember... breathe... it'll be alright...[8D]

    FIXED IT!! Went and got the new spring, took apart the clutch bell and there it was a snapped spring. It didn't just come loose it snapped in 2 about 5 spring loops from the end. Anyway put the new spring on and waaaala the rings run like a charm, just a little tuning in and it was off once again at 10:00 at night in the pitch black LOL!! I need to get headlights and brakelights on there somehow, maybe some leds.
